B12 deficiency research
A vitamin B12 deficiency can make you really sick in many different ways. Some people are born with an inability to process the vitamin. McGill researchers have identified a gene that is key to the absorption of vitamin into the cells of the body. RCI’s Lynn Desjardins spoke with Dr. David Rosenblatt, chairman of the Department of Human Genetics at McGill University.
Arts-Culture #11- Vancouver Maritime Museum; Niagara Wine Festival
( T. Jerven)
Welcome to the Arts and culture report #11 Sept 9th. On this edition,  we hear about events in Ontario and British Columbia

The first is a quirk but very enjoyable exhibit of maritime memorabilia at the Vancouver Maritime Museum.  It's called, "Don't Eat the Whale Meat". The museum brought out several items from their back shelves and store rooms in this most interesting display.Then, we hear about a major celebration of wine in one of Canada’s  biggest wine growing areas, the Niagara region of Southern Ontario. Where they’re celebrating the 61st edition of the Niagara Wine fest. With music, parades, winery tours, seminars and of course lots of superb Niagara wines..

As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome via voice mail, or email.
So raise a glass and say, Chimo!

Politics Today September 9, 2012

On this edition of "Politics Today" RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda talks about the week's two big political stories.

On Friday, Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird announced that Canada would close its embassy in Iran, expel Iranian diplomats from Canada, and formally list Iran as a state sponser of terrorism.

The other big political story was the election of the separatist Parti Quebecois in the predominantly French-speaking province of Quebec on Tuesday, September 4. It was a very tight vote, with the Parti Quebecois just barely winning against the ruling Liberal party. We'll look at what happened, and what it means in the short term for politics in the province.
